Luke Bryan has been using many of his VIP pre-show hangs to showcase new music, getting a little sneak peek at how fans would react to different songs as he prepares to release a new album.
And yes, all of them have sounded like hits.
But one song in particular seems as if it might raise a few eyebrows. Shared during a recent pre-show concert, Luke sang a song possibly called “What Makes You Country,” with lyrics that include “people talking about what is and isn’t country” and “let me hit you with some hardcore truth.” The song goes on to say, essentially, that no matter who you are, where you live or what you do for a living, you have every right to call yourself country.
Luke should know, as the Georgia farm boy’s music has often has been unfairly accused of being not country enough.
It’s just one of the many songs that Luke is sure to be sharing a bit more of as he heads out on his ninth annual “Farm Tour 2017” on September 28, alongside opener Jon Pardi on every stop through October 7. What makes this tour even cooler? Luke will once again award college scholarships to a local student from a farming family within the communities where he plays.
